To advance goals 7 and 13, and meet the global ambitions of sustainable energy transitions and universal energy access, this paper calls for transformations in the practice of knowledge-making and governance.
Born in 1978, Pollutec is recognized today as the reference meeting place for environment professionals. The event develops multiple SDGs, including SDGs 6 (clean water and sanitation), 7 (affordable and clean energy), 12 (responsible consumption and production) and 13 (climate action).
The efficiency and power output of a PV module decrease at the peak of sunlight due to energy loss as heat energyand this reduces the module power output. Multi-concept cooling technique, a concept that involves three types of passive cooling, namely conductive cooling, air passive cooling and water passive cooling has the potential to tackle this challenge.
Challenges posed by the intermittency of solar energy source necessitate the integration of solar energy conversion with scalable energy storage systems. The monolithic integration of photoelectrochemical solar energy conversion and electrochemical energy storage offers an efficient and compact approach toward practical solar energy utilization. Here, we present the design principles for and the demonstration of a highly efficient integrated solar flow battery (SFB) device with a record solar-to-output electricity efficiency of 14.1%.
